Installed the HID headlamps for a test run of how they fit and look, gotta say it looks damn sexy with DRL's and the bulbs are around 4100K which is the whitest xenon colour you can get, exact colour to LED.

 

The headlamp ballast got in a clash with the DRL wiring and looms just under the headlight i moved it all and sorted it no biggy i do like the look of the ZS bumper with DRL's and xenon therefore i have decided to keep my ZS bumper rather than fitting the ST bumper for now. will complete this retrofit mod with ZS bumper

Yeah they look really neat. Did you use the guide on here or just figure it out yourself coz preee's guide adds a switch in the cockpit. Is it just a case of scotchlocking onto the existing lighting loom as I aint bothered about a switch- I want them on when the ignition is on. Soz for thread jacking

Thread jacking is totally fine bro we are all here to share info :D

 

Yeah i used the guide but to be honest it's pretty straight forward once you've laid out all the parts you won't even need the guide. I did not install the switch as the guide shows that's optional i couldn't be bothered with the extra wiring.

 

The only part where i really used the guide is double checking the correct cable to tap into with the scotchlock as there is a choice to have DRL dim or totally go off.

 

The kit also comes with more than enough cable ties to safely and neatly run all wiring securely and permanently

Good info cheers. I was looking at these from the UK. Looks like it works out round about the same as getting the ones from taiwan. What you think?

Yeah looks good bud, looks like the exact ones i have. These are actually cheaper than the the ones from taiwan because there is a hidden £15 import tax slapped on the price.

 

plus it comes with warranty, go for it

I wont be fitting it, i thought about it but i do not want to lose out on having DRL's good as the ones i currently have. so therefore i will not be fitting the ST bumper. Later on it will be used as a template to cut the holes on my ZS bumper for headlamp washers then it's for sale.

 

The headlamp washer parts has come up to over £300 from ford, can't find it anywhere else so i've been buying it in bits directly from ford thus mean until headlamp washers has been installed and working the ST bumper won't be for sale yet. 

 

I'm in the process of gathering other parts too such as rear brake disc conversion parts, everything is becoming rather expensive and time consuming

Fair enough I now what you mean about everything becoming expensive ive start to look for side skirts for my 5dr and as if there not hard enough to find the ones i have found are pricey.

Loving the HID's, been considering this for a while and you've just made my mind up. The whole mot legality part has been putting me off:/
